Achillea millefolium



Yarrow is one of the most versatile and adaptive plants I have formed a relationship with.


Traditionally, yarrow has been used to soothe GI problems, staunch a bleeding wound, assist in circulatory flow, balance the flow of blood (internally and externally), and help the body release internal heat by opening pores for sweat to flow.


Yarrow grows anywhere from sea level to almost 12,000ft in elevation. Depending where you meet Yarrow, this plant will have vastly different qualities.


At sea level, everything is a bit more plump. Depending on if Yarrow lives on the Oceanside cliff or the grassy field just before the sandy beach, their stems can range from short and stout to long and thick. The flowers are bigger, juicer and aren’t afraid to take up space.


Growing out a a sidewalk in a city, the leaves are small and tight, the stem following suit. The blossoms don’t extend much past the areas of the leaves. In order to survive, city Yarrow needs to stay small and compact.


Up in the Alpine Meadows, Yarrow’s leaves and stem reach as high as they can toward the sky. The cluster of flowers is broad and there is plenty of space to fan out.


In addition to Yarrow’s adaptability, they never waver in their boundaries. No matter what qualities Yarrow takes on in order to thrive in different environments, Yarrow is still Yarrow. They still hold their heads high, ground their roots, and are unwavering in what they have to offer.
